Last month we transitioned Liam to his toddler room! You can find that post here. What I did not go into detail on in that post, was the Montessori Inspiration behind it!
What is Montessori?
Here is a GREAT explanation of what Montessori is. The simple explanation, is a style of learning that fosters independence. Montessori at home consists of setting your child up to do things on their own. Such as having books and toys at their level. Low furniture, such as their bed that they can get in and out of on their own. Easily accessible hooks for clothing etc.
Yes, Liam does have a King Sized bed, we were gifted a mattress from Purple.com last year and honestly we went with a King Size bed, off chance we liked it more than our Avocado Mattress. However, having a King size bed has been great for those nights when Liam needs someone to fall asleep with him. It fit’s his Dock a Tot very well, and I love that it is low enough to the ground that he can climb in and out on his own, without those UGLY toddler rails.
We added these great book shelves from Ikea, they are actually a “photo ledge” His Lollipop Baby Camera is mounted high enough that we can see his entire room and I love the personalized touch from Shop Love Found.
Shop Love Found was created by a mama who was wanting a minimal and modern birth stat print for her daughter. They have definitely achieved the perfect birth stat and baby name print!
His light fixtures are from Amazon, I loved how simple and modern they are. While they can be turned on and off from the cord, the way Liam’s room is set up, he is able to reach the light switch by the door.
His teepee is from Tnees Tpees, this is an item I would be very careful where you purchase. As all of the Tee Pees I have seen, at places like Hobby Lobby, are sprayed with toxic fire retardant.
This super fun Highland Cow Print is from Target, I was excited when I was able to find it in store!
Last but not least, don’t forget our favorite SWOOP BAGS!
